All good questions. Using animated Bible stories, we will take a closer look at the story of Abraham, Sarah and Isaac, Moses and the Red Sea and many more.

What To Expect

Each of our volunteers has gone through an orientation and safety process to provide the best possible care for your child. At the time of check-in, a loving and trained leader will greet you. Please provide us with a cell phone number that you have in your possession. In the event we need to contact you during service, we will send you a text message (remember to leave your cellular phone on vibrate/silence during the service). You and your child will receive a check-in tag. For their safety, your child will not be released without presentation of the parent’s corresponding tag.
